The White Birch Bow is a unique bow in Dark Souls III: The Ringed City.

In-Game Description

A short bow crafted with white birch. Endowed with light-manipulating magic.
The bow is a relic from an ancient land of sorceries that was swallowed by the Abyss, most known for its folktale of the heroic Abysswalker.
Skill: Unseen Arrow
Arrows shot by large pulls of the bow are enchanted with a golden spell that turns them nearly invisible.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in The Ringed City, in the swamp before the Ringed City Streets bonfire.

From the bonfire, cross the swamp, then move to the left, onto the hill guarded by numerous Hobbled Clerics. The bow can be found on a corpse in the area.

CharacteristicsEdit

A rather unusual bow, the White Birch Bow possesses some characteristics that can make it a boon in the right hands.

Requiring 20 Dexterity, it has the highest Dexterity requirement of all bows, limiting the number of builds that can wield it. However, as it is classified as a short bow, it is capable of performing rolling and running attacks like the Short Bow and Composite Bow, albeit with a shot range that rivals that of the Longbow. The drawback, however, is that it barely scales with Strength, and as a result will ultimately deal the least damage per shot among all bows in the game.

The main characteristic of the White Birch Bow is its skill, which hides the arrow that it fires. Combined with the Obscuring Ring and its higher than usual shot range, this allows crafty invaders to attack the host's party from outside of detection range, without revealing the direction that they attacked from.

TriviaEdit

  • This bow was originally intended to appear in the base game as the "Dancer's Short Bow", but was ultimately cut and then reused in The Ringed City.
  • The item's description alludes to Oolacile, a land renowned for its light-manipulating sorcery and the setting of Artorias of the Abyss.
